Hey, I'm getting really frustrated with MX2004. I used to just edit a symbol by double clicking it and then align it to the center of stage which put in on the moveclips registration point. Now MX2004 seems to insist on using the upper left hand corner of my graphic as the registration point!!! arg, it's driving me nuts because no matter what I try I cant get the registration point to center on my object. This means that making an object move to 0,0 is complete bullshit because you have to also subtract the width and height to actually get it to the real 0,0.

I admit this is a newb question, but I just don't understand why it has changed from MX to MX2004. Any solutions?

I don't know what it's called off hand but under the Info pane there is a small cube that has a center or upper left corner box that you can click in to change the registration point.

I'm not using 2004 at work so I can only reference MX.

Hope it works.
